  4. 4. Balancing of reciprocating masses- An Introduction •Wkt, various forces acting on the reciprocating parts of an engine. •The resultant of all the forces acting on the body of the engine due to inertia forces only is known as unbalanced force or shaking force. •Thus if the resultant of all the forces due to inertia effects is zero, then there will be no unbalanced force, but even then an unbalanced couple or shaking couple will be present. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 4
  5. 5. Balancing of reciprocating masses- An Introduction •Consider a horizontal reciprocating engine mechanism as shown in Fig. FR = Force required to accelerate the reciprocating parts. FI = Inertia force due to reciprocating parts, FN = Force on the sides of the cylinder walls or normal force acting on the cross-head guides, and FB = Force acting on the crankshaft bearing or main bearing. •Since FR and FI, are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction, therefore they balance each other. •The horizontal component of FB (i.e. FBH) acting along the line of reciprocation is also equal and opposite to FI . •This force FBH = FU is an unbalanced force or shaking force and required to be properly balanced. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 5
  6. 6. Balancing of reciprocating masses- An Introduction •The force on the sides of the cylinder walls (FN) and the vertical component of FB (i.e. FBV) are equal and opposite and thus form a shaking couple of magnitude FN x X or FBV x X. •From above, we see that the effect of the reciprocating parts is to produce a shaking force and a shaking couple. Since the shaking force and a shaking couple vary in magnitude and direction during the engine cycle, therefore they cause very objectionable vibrations. •Thus the purpose of balancing the reciprocating masses is to eliminate the shaking force and a shaking couple. In most of the mechanisms, we can reduce the shaking force and a shaking couple by adding appropriate balancing mass, but it is usually not practical to eliminate them completely. In other words, the reciprocating masses are only partially balanced. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 6

  11. 11. Primary and Secondary Unbalanced Forces of Reciprocating Masses •Consider a reciprocating engine mechanism as shown in Fig. Let, m = Mass of the reciprocating parts, L = Length of the connecting rod PC, r = Radius of the crank 0C, θ = Angle of inclination of the crank with the line of stroke PO, ω = Angular speed of the crank, n = Ratio of length of the connecting rod to the crank radius = L/r. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 11
  12. 12. We have already discussed that, the acceleration of the reciprocating parts is approximately given by the expression. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 12
  13. 13. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 13
  14. 14. Partial Balancing of Unbalanced Primary Force In a Reciprocating Engine The primary unbalanced force (m-ffl rcos6) may be considered as the component of the centrifugal force produced by a rotating mass m placed at the crank radius r, as shown in Fig. •This is balanced by having a mass B at a radius b, placed diametrically opposite to the crank pin C. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 14 The primary force acts from O to P along the line of stroke. Hence, balancing of primary force is considered as equivalent to the balancing of mass m rotating at the crank radius r.
  15. 15. •A little consideration will show, that the primary force is completely balanced if B.b = m.r, but the centrifugal force produced due to the revolving mass B has also a vertical component (perpendicular to the line of stroke) of magnitude • This force remains unbalanced. The maximum value of this force is equal to Bω2b when θ is 90° and 270°, which is same as the maximum value of the primary force mω2r 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 15
  16. 16. •From the above discussion, we see that in the first case, the primary unbalanced force acts along the line of stroke whereas in the second case, the unbalanced force acts along the perpendicular to the line of stroke. •The maximum value of the force remains same in both the cases. •It is thus obvious, that the effect of the above method of balancing is to change the direction of the maximum unbalanced force from the line of stroke to the perpendicular of line of stroke. •As a compromise, let a fraction ‘c’ of the reciprocating masses is balanced, such that: cmr = B.b •Therefore, Unbalanced force along the line of stroke 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 16
  17. 17. and unbalanced force along the perpendicular to the line of stroke 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 17
  18. 18. A single cylinder reciprocating engine has speed 240 r.p.m., stroke 300 mm, mass of reciprocating parts 50 kg, mass of revolving parts at 150 mm radius is 37 kg. If two-third of the reciprocating parts and all the revolving parts are to be balanced, find: 1. The balance mass required at a radius of 400 mm, and 2. The residual unbalanced force when the crank has rotated 60° from top dead centre. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 18

  20. 20. Balancing of Primary Forces of Multi-cylinder In-line Engines •The multi-cylinder engines with the cylinder centre lines in the same plane and on the same side of the centre line of the crankshaft, are known as In-line engines. •The following two conditions must be satisfied in order to give the primary balance of the reciprocating parts of a multi-cylinder engine : 1)The algebraic sum of the primary forces must be equal to zero. In other words, the primary force polygon must close ; and 2) The algebraic sum of the couples about any point in the plane of the primary forces must be equal to zero. In other words, the primary couple polygon must close. We have already discussed, that the primary unbalanced force due to the reciprocating masses is equal to the component parallel to the line of stroke, of the centrifugal force produced by the equal mass placed at the crankpin and revolving with it. Therefore, in order to give the primary balance of the reciprocating parts of a multi-cylinder engine, it is convenient to imagine the reciprocating masses to be transferred to their respective crankpins and to treat the problem as one of revolving masses. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 20
  21. 21. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 21
  22. 22. Notes : 1)For a two cylinder engine with cranks at 180°, condition (1) may be satisfied, but this will result in an unbalanced couple. Thus the above method of primary balancing cannot be applied in this case. 2)For a three cylinder engine with cranks at 120° and if the reciprocating masses per cylinder are same, then condition (1) will be satisfied because the forces may be represented by the sides of an equilateral triangle. However, by taking a reference plane through one of the cylinder centre lines, two couples with non-parallel axes will remain and these cannot vanish vectorially. Hence the above method of balancing fails in this case also. 3)For a four cylinder engine, similar reasoning will show that complete primary balance is possible and it follows that For a multi-cylinder engine, the primary forces may be completely balanced by suitably arranging the crank angles, provided that the number of cranks are not less than four'. •The closing side of the primary force polygon gives the maximum unbalanced primary force and the closing side of the primary couple polygon gives the maximum un-balanced primary couple. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 22
  23. 23. Balancing of Secondary Forces of Multi-cylinder In-line Engines •When the connecting rod is not too long (i.e. when the obliquity of the connecting rod is considered), then the secondary disturbing force due to the reciprocating mass arises. •We have discussed that the secondary force, •As in case of primary forces, the secondary forces may be considered to be equivalent to the component, parallel to the line of stroke, of the centrifugal force produced by an equal mass placed at the imaginary crank of length r/4n and revolving at twice the speed of the actual crank (i.e. 2 ω) as shown in Fig. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 23
  24. 24. •Thus, in multi-cylinder in-line engines, each imaginary secondary crank with a mass attached to the crankpin is inclined to the line of stroke at twice the angle of the actual crank. •The values of the secondary forces and couples may be obtained by considering the revolving mass. This is done in the similar way as discussed for primary forces. •The following two conditions must be satisfied in order to give a complete secondary balance of an engine : 1.The algebraic sum of the secondary forces must be equal to zero. In other words, the secondary force polygon must close, and 2.The algebraic sum of the couples about any point in the plane of the secondary forces must be equal to zero. In other words, the secondary couple polygon must close. Note : The closing side of the secondary force polygon gives the maximum unbalanced secondary force and the closing side of the secondary couple polygon gives the maximum unbalanced secondary couple. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 24
  25. 25. •In order to give the primary balance of the reciprocating parts of a multi- cylinder engine, the problem may be treated as that of revolving masses with the reciprocating masses transferred to their respective crank pins. •The position of planes is shown in Fig. a 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 25

  31. 31. •The secondary crank positions obtained by rotating the primary cranks at twice the angle, is shown in Fig (e). •Now draw the secondary force polygon, as shown in Fig. ( f ), to some suitable scale, from the data given in Table (column 4). •The closing side of the polygon shown dotted in Fig. ( f ) represents the maximum secondary unbalanced force. •By measurement, we find that the maximum secondary unbalanced force is proportional to 582 kg-m. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 31
  32. 32. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 32 •By measurement, the maximum secondary unbalanced force m.r. Cos 2θ= 582 kg-m.

  36. 36. •From Fig. (d) and (f), we see that the primary force polygons and couple polygons are closed figures, therefore there are no out-of-balance primary forces. •Thus the engine is balanced for primary forces and couples. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 36
  37. 37. •From Fig. (e) and (g), we see that the secondary force polygons and couple polygons are closed figures, therefore there are no out-of-balance secondary forces and couples. •Thus the engine is balanced for secondary forces and couples. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 37

  42. 42. Balancing of Radial Engines (Direct and Reverse Cranks Method ) •The method of direct and reverse cranks is used in balancing of radial or V-engines, in which the connecting rods are Connected to a common crank. Since the plane of rotation of the various cranks (in radial or V-engines) is same, therefore there is no unbalanced primary or secondary couple. •Consider a reciprocating engine mechanism as shown in Fig. •Let the crank OC (known as the direct crank) rotates uniformly at ω radians per second in a clockwise direction. Let at any instant the crank makes an angle θ with the line of stroke OP. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 42
  43. 43. •The indirect or reverse crank OC' is the image of the direct crank OC, when seen through the mirror placed at the line of stroke. •A little consideration will show that when the direct crank revolves in a clockwise direction, the reverse crank will revolve in the anticlockwise direction. •We shall now discuss the primary and secondary forces due to the mass (m) of the reciprocating parts at P. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 43
  44. 44. Considering the primary forces •We have already discussed that primary force is •This force is equal to the component of the centrifugal force along the line of stroke, produced by a mass (m) placed at the crank pin C. •Now let us suppose that the mass (m) of the reciprocating parts is divided into two parts, each equal to m/2. •It is assumed that m/2 is fixed at the direct crank (termed as primary direct crank) pin C and m/2 at the reverse crank (termed as primary reverse crank) pin C', as shown in Fig. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 44
  45. 45. •We know that the centrifugal force acting on the primary direct and reverse crank •Hence, for primary effects the mass m of the reciprocating parts at P may be replaced by two masses at C and C' each of magnitude m/2. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 45
  46. 46. Note : •The component of the centrifugal forces of the direct and reverse cranks, in a direction perpendicular to the line of stroke, are each equal to , but opposite in direction. •Hence these components are balanced. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 46
  47. 47. •In the similar way as discussed above, it will be seen that for the secondary effects, the mass (m) of the reciprocating parts may be replaced by two masses (each m/2) placed at D and D‘ such that OD = OD’ = r/4n. •The crank OD is the secondary direct crank and rotates at 2ω rad/s in the clockwise direction, while the crank OD' is the secondary reverse crank and rotates at 2ω rad/s in the anti CW direction as shown in Fig. . 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 47
  48. 48. •The position of three cylinders is shown in Fig. Let the common crank be along the inner dead centre of cylinder 1. Since common crank rotates clockwise, therefore θ is positive when measured clockwise. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 48

  50. 50. Maximum primary force acting on the frame of the compressor •The primary direct and reverse crank positions as shown in Fig (a) and (b), are obtained as discussed below : 1)Since θ=0° for cylinder 1, therefore both the primary direct and reverse cranks will coincide with the common crank. 2)Since θ = ±120° for cylinder 2, therefore the primary direct crank is 120° clockwise and the primary reverse crank is 120° anti-clockwise from the line of stroke of cylinder 2. 3) Since θ= ± 240° for cylinder 3, therefore the primary direct crank is 240° clockwise and the primary reverse crank is 240° anti-clockwise from the line of stroke of cylinder 3. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 50
  51. 51. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 51 From Fig.(b), we see that the primary reverse cranks form a balanced system. Therefore there is no unbalanced primary force due to the reverse cranks.
  52. 52. Maximum secondary force acting on the frame of the compressor •The secondary direct and reverse crank positions as shown in Fig. (a) and (b) are obtained as discussed below : 1.Since θ =0° and 2θ =0° for cylinder 1, therefore both the secondary direct and reverse cranks will coincide with the common crank. 2.Since θ = ±120° and 2θ = ± 240° for cylinder 2, therefore the secondary direct crank is 240° clockwise and the secondary reverse crank is 240° anticlockwise from the line of stroke of cylinder 2. 3.Since θ = ± 240° and 2θ = ± 480°, therefore the secondary direct crank is 480° or 120° clockwise and the secondary reverse crank is 480° or 120° anti-clockwise from the line of stroke of cylinder 3. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 52
  53. 53. •From Fig.(a), we see that the secondary direct cranks form a balanced system. •Therefore there is no unbalanced secondary force due to the direct cranks. From Fig. (b) we see that the resultant secondary force is equivalent to the centrifugal force of a mass 3 m/2 attached at a crank radius of r/4n and rotating at a speed of 2ω rad/s in the opposite direction to the crank.2 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 53
  54. 54. Balancing of V-engines •Consider a symmetrical two cylinder V-engine as shown in Fig. •The common crank OC is driven by two connecting rods PC and QC. The lines of stroke OP and OQ are inclined to the vertical OY, at an angle α. 11/6/2014 Hareesha N G, Dept of Aero Engg, DSCE, Blore 54
